Eunice Mildred Haywood grew up Raleigh and began quilting as a child. At age seventy-three, she has been quilting for over sixty years. Her first quilt, which she named 'Broken Dishes,' was made for her daughter when she went off to college. The quilt made such an impression that people would ask her daughter if it was for sale. Two of Haywood's quilts have been displayed in the art department of North Carolina State University. Now a resident of Wake Forest, Haywood is devoted to gospel music. In 2000, she and her daughter Millicent formed 'We Care,' which is dedicated to drawing attention to the music through a series of quilts entitled 'Signature Quilts.'
